David Horton 5pts Not sure why anyone is surprised or even concerned about this. If we are putting combative people into the ring, why should we expect the EU to do different? Seeuws, Verhofstadt and Barnier are merely a reflection of Davis, Johnson and Fox.Between the two camps, I can't see any compromise coming out of the post Art 50 discussion. The EU will bite off its nose (and its ears) to spite its face. I fancy we will be wasting our time and if the mood is to stonewall, should just smile and bail. We'd likely fall into a recession, but for the EU, it will be depression and destruction.Not that such an eventuality will make the EU any less vengeful.
